I sense a kindred spirit...

Ifrit

This Esper uses great energy to fry foes in an inferno. Good on foes weak vs. fire.

PlayStation esper section

Ifrit is an esper in Final Fantasy VI who can be acquired as a magicite after being fought.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Ifrit is a green, humanoid beast-like creature. He has bulging muscles, and two large ram horns, as well as long, purple hair.

Story[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Along with Shiva, Ifrit is discarded by Kefka in the Magitek Research Facility. He attacks the party when approached, but stops when he senses Ramuh's power (which occurs when either his or Shiva's HP is depleted). After hearing the party's story (and telling one of his own), he turns into magicite to help the party defeat the Gestahlian Empire.

During his post-battle dialogue, Ifrit claims he and Ramuh were brothers born of different elements.

During Kefka's attack on Thamasa, a red palette swap of Ifrit attacks him with powerful fire spells, but is easily slain by Kefka.

Spoilers end here.

Obtained[edit | edit source]

Ifrit is obtained after defeating him in battle. If the party moves on without picking the magicites up, they are permanently missed.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Ifrit costs 26 MP to summon. He casts an attack called Hellfire (Inferno in the SNES and PS translation) which deals unblockable Fire damage with a Spell Power of 51.

Magicite[edit | edit source]

Boss[edit | edit source]

Ifrit is fought as a boss alongside Shiva. They switch places in battle frequently, so the player must prepare the right elemental attack. When either of their HP is depleted, the battle will end.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

In Arabian mythology, Ifrit (also spelled Efreet or Afreet, from Arabic عفريت Ifrīt), is the name given to a class of Jinn (Demons also known as Djinn, Djinni, and Genie) that embody fire. Though they could live for thousands of years, they were not immortal, and if cut, they would "bleed" the fire running through their veins until it consumed their bodies.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ifrit is the only esper whose full body can be seen during his summon animation. He rotates 360 degrees so the player can see his front, side, and back.
